Alcoholics Anonymous Meeting -- Near Campus

"Clean Slate" meets Mondays at 7pm at Bidwell Presbyterian church right by campus, upstairs in room 210.  Open Meeting. All are welcome.   
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
